An evening of stamping...

Wow we are in a little bit of a cold spell here! Barely any snow but man it was COLD yesterday...glad I'm on inside supervision this week at the school....lol
Last night after dinner I ran down to work on these few cards.
This first one is for the sketch on SCS. It's a SU! only card.
Pretty simple and quick(10min).
Stamps: Deer Friends; Cardstock: Old Olive, Choc Chip, Shimmery White and Ski Slope DP; Inks: Old Olive, Choc Chip, Yo Yo Yellow; Accessories: Silver Brads, Curvy Punch, 1" circle punch, Dimensionals
I know it's Thursday and I'm just getting around to doing Julee's Mojo sketch from Monday....this week has been crazy with school volunteer stuff. It's really cutting into my stamp time which seems to only happen in the evenings....I used to NEVER stamp at night....I'm not a night person....you know...in bed by like 10 pm and I get up at 5:30 am each day.
Anyway, this is what I came up with using Julee's Mojo63 sketch. I haven't used the Petals and Stems set for a while now. Don't you think it goes well with this pattern from the Washington Apple DP? Well maybe if I didn't cover most of it up eh?! lol
Julee wanted to embrace the white space this week....something I don't often do....but it's so clean and crisp and pretty!
Stamps: Petals and Stems, Feeling Groovy; Cardstock: PTI white, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Washington Apple DP; Inks: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red; Accessories: Scalloped edge punch, silver brads, mini pearls, martha butterfly punch, curvy punch, mat pack and paper piercer, dimensionals
Even though my parent's Wedding Anniversary isn't for quite a few months, I thought I'd make this cute card for them....they aren't gray haired(not completely) or bald yet but my parent's have a pretty good sense of humor! This set is from H & M Stamps and is called Our Love.
This uses Julee's Mojo63 sketch as well.
Stamps: Our Love; Cardstock: PTI white, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Maine Blueberry DP; Inks: NQN, Old Olive, Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copics, scalloped edge punch, chipboard flower, olive poly twill, dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Love what you did with the SCS Sketch. Very rich and elegant.

You're right, the Verve Petals are a great match to the Washington Apple paper (I can see it, LOL!).

Thanks for your offer for help yesterday. I'm still playing, but I may have a few questions for ya. Thanks!! :)

Great cards, Dawn!!

I'm usually working at night! With four kids in four directions, I can get most of my stamping done only when they're in bed!! LOL

Let me know the next time you're being nocturnal -- we can keep each other awake! :)
